We celebrated R's birthday as best we could without Dad. We made a little Funfetti Cake - Rs favorite since she was a little bitty thing. We went to Chili's and ordered take-out. We watched some of our favorite shows and took calls from Grandparents wishing her well. L was even a gentleman and instead of calling 'Shotgun' all day he let R sit up front.
We didn't get as much snow as we could have, but that's okay. I didn't want it to be so bad that RL would be battling black ice on the drive home from the airport this evening.
Then the dreaded phone call came this morning. The snow in Atlanta caused a delay in Dublin. The delay in Dublin means a delay in RLs plans to be home tonight. He is probably somewhere between Dublin and Atlanta right now. However, that's where the plane stops and that's where he will spend the night. If it wasn't for fear of black ice - and being a native Floridian, I have a healthy fear of black ice - I would drive to Atlanta and pick him up. So, a hotel was booked for tonight. A new flight will be scheduled as soon as he can get to the Delta desk. Another night without him. What a total bummer!
